The Black Ties: A Touch of Class and a Dash of Style

When three of South Africa’s premier entertainers came together in 2007, a little magic happened along the way…

Ladies and gentlemen, we’d like you to meet The Black Ties, starring Chad Saaiman, Keeno Lee and Lloyd Jansen. Entertaining, charming and witty, The Black Ties are the ultimate cover band taking you on a musical journey through your favourite songs all the way from Earth Wind and Fire and Frank Sinatra to the likes of Justin Timberlake and Pharrell Williams and so much more!

With one of the most diverse cover band repertoires, The Black Ties can perform any genre and music style to cater to your event. Styled to perfection and always dressed to the nines, The Black Ties add class and finesse to the stage. With your great venue and a live band or backing track to provide the music, an evening with The Black Ties promises to be an evening filled with fun and entertainment for all.


With experience performing on stages across the world, i.e Spain, Syechelles, Dubai et. al the boys rise to any occasion.

From HSBC Rugby 7s at Cape Town Stadium to several shows at Grand Arena to touring with American R&B Star Tevin Campbell in 2013, UK star Phil Fearon in 2014, and Brian McKnight in 2015 – they always come through and deliver! Boasting a few SAMA Nominations and Metro FM Awards between them, these three musical talents combine to form a dynamic and
thoroughly enjoyable unit.

With a penchant for old world charm and an eye for contemporary trends - no venue is too big to be intimate or too small to be fun when the atmosphere, the energy and above all, the music is, well, just right. The Black Ties bring the best of both worlds to your stage or dance floor.

If you are a business or entertainment venue and would like to book The Black Ties for your next event, you’ve made the right choice.
